Texas Film Commission Denies Incentives for Robert Rodriguez’s ‘Machete’

Posted on 09 December 2010 by Christian

The letter was signed by Carol Pirie , deputy director of the commission, and dated one day after former commission director Bob Hudgins resigned amid government findings that he sexually harassed female employees
